1 thread under you my friend....The Hitec 7955 is By FAR the most durable dependable steering servo on the market....it can handle Direct 2 cell lipo with out worry and has Titanium gear's VS brass which the competition seems to think cut's the mustard....but it doesn't

The Hitech is nice these to are also good options.

JR 9100T (overkill on the torque for a buggy though)
Futaba BLS352 ( what I run, but Ive always been a futaba guy)

Id say look for something with 200oz of torque and up.

Hitec all the way.

Soon as my steering servo (Ace DS1313, POS, just waiting for it to die now, and it's only 3 weeks old, other one died at 2 months) dies, I'll be getting the 7955, unless I run into a ton of money, in which case, I'll try out the JR high voltage servos, at $200 a pop.

Hitec Hitec Hitec.....the JR's will never match the performance and durability of the hitec's....Ive heard of some of the JR's failing already which is never a good sign.

Really?
Guess I'll be getting the 7955 if it fails, already have a 6965 as my throttle servo, does a decent job, only problem I'll have is getting some kind of servo saver that works with my MGT, time to get hunting.

never heard of 2 or 3 a year, I have an Air 94358 thats been in my 1/8 for over 3 years and is still as strong as it ever was and have a JR9100T in my other working flawlessly for over a year now. Only time I see servos go south in 1/8 is when there are too light of servo for the job installed, seen many JR650's and 590s go up in smoke, literally, but the ace 1015 or 13?, hobbico cs170 work fine for along long time

Try out the Hobbico CS-170. $89 on Towerhobbies. I've ran mine for over two years in truggy with no problems. Same stats as the Hitec 5955's.
